Here’s our medium-weight cotton tee cut in the classic Realm & Empire raglan sleeve regular fit… with a story that inspired a whole collection! By 1945, USAAF teams in Britain were playing baseball regularly, and while stationed in Bury St Edmonds, the 94th Bomb Group decided on a unique way to celebrate the Allied victory – using a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress nicknamed “The Better Half” to deliver the first ball for their base tournament! The stunt was authorised by base Commander Colonel Charles B Dougher and took several attempts but was finally achieved and the four-engine giant pitched from 300 feet at a phenomenal 175 miles per hour. The ultimate speed demon!

Original inspiration

Based on WW2 USAAF 94TH BOMB GROUP.
